Damian Bunce, Chief Customer Officer at Exness told Gulf Today that Exness was formed in 2008, during the retail brokerage boom, with a mission to redefine the way traders access markets. Since our inception, we have offered a highly scientific approach to liquidity provision, within a highly ethical framework. Our risk appetite, coupled with our willingness to commit capital to clients, has enabled us to create better-than-market trading conditions. Our founder is an accomplished software engineer; having such a mindset at the helm of the company has laid the foundations for a highly technical and problem-solving DNA, and one which is ever-evolving. We use the word Bold when describing our brand, to emphasize that we are prepared to do things that are more risky for the company in order to have a more beneficial impact for clients. It’s an approach which of course is not problem-free, but it has served us well so far.

“We are big believers in the region, which has proved time and again to be resilient and innovative. Dubai is one of the leaders in crypto regulation and is a recent example that continues to attract many exciting start-ups. We always participate in the events here and often take center stage with our booth and presence. We understand the importance of these marketing investments to growing our credibility and have face-to-face contact with clients and partners.”

“We stick to our principles and we let our clients do the talking. Like every industry, the retail trading industry has had its fair share of bad actors and they have left a stain on the big credible brokers, but with over two decades of operation, the industry has consolidated and those standing strong and reliable for their clients go from strength to strength in the knowledge that their reputation is everything.”

“We plan to add more metals products, specifically zinc and copper in the coming months. We will be extending more information in our Personal Area platform around the trading advantages we offer; on the platform we have integrated trading signals from Trading Central into our charts and activated a host of new indicators based on tick volumes. We have a brand new order placement form with a built-in calculator and Bulk Order Modification functionality. In the future, we will likely do more work on charting, including embedding indicators when a high margin requirement applies.
